This is a beautiful wine estate, comprising an accommodation village with charming rooms, a couple of restaurants on site (the in-hotel dining experience was excellent), Eagle Encounters - a sanctuary for birds of prey - well worth the visit - as well as wine tasting, organic food market, a lovely park to connect all of these etc... Can easily spend two full days there without getting bored and without heading into town.
One drawback during our stay: a large group of SA yuppies (sorry!) stayed there for a conference - they were very boisterous and noisy till dawn, which didn't contribute to a great nights sleep - I guess nothing the hotel really could do about it, but it does disturb the wonderful peacefulness of the place. Hopefully it was a one-off...
